Monday Motivation wk. 2

Another Monday Motivation coming your way! Guys I am so pleased to say that I am down a few pounds already! I have really stuck with my commitment to change my body and being healthier. I have not been perfect over the past two weeks. I have eaten brownies and made homemade biscuits and gravy on the weekend. The important key is balance. Each morning I wake up and make my breakfast, then get my son up and his breakfast ready. If I get hungry before lunch, I typically do, I have a boiled egg or a palm full of nuts. Lunch is another smoothie packed full of kale, spinach, fruit, and protein. Super healthy and actually really tasty and healthy!

I try to stay more conscious about what I put into my body and to help me do so I track everything. I personally use fitbit to track my food but there are so many great trackers out there such as my fitness pal. I like seeing the breakdown of macro and micro nutrients. That may just be the nutritionist in me being a little crazy.

Changing up your workouts is important so that you don’t get bored and your muscles don’t get used to it and bored as well! Lately I have mixed up my workouts with boxing. It can really workout your whole body and is a great way to reduce stress! I really love it and it’s something me and my husband can do together!

Stick with it loves! It takes time to see a change but you can also feel the change when you treat your body with love and focus on your health and goals!

Motivation Monday

As most of you know, last Saturday I had a traumatic experience that left me super upset and ashamed of the way I looked. So last Monday I started a diet and began to revamp my exercise routine. I have to say so far it is going really well. I’ve studied nutrition all through school and knew what I needed to do but making a change when I’ve never had to workout or eat super healthy before was going to be a challenge.

I am so proud of myself so far. I have committed to making smoothies for breakfast and lunch. I also eat boiled eggs and nuts for snacks if I get hungry in between meals. I drink a gallon of water a day, or as close as I can get to. For dinner I make some sort of lean protein with a salad. I have had no alcohol, pop, or juice. I have done very well by not cheating as well. This weekend I relaxed a bit because we ate out and went to friends for dinner. I obviously did not restrict them to cooking what I could eat.

I feel as though I can begin to see slight changes. I feel my clothes beginning to loosen up just a bit. I am so excited and no way will I be giving up on this. I definitely want a rocking bod for my honeymoon.

Stay motivated loves! Staying committed is the best way to reach your goals. Keep things interesting and mix up foods and workouts so that you don’t get bored!
